Language & Wine
Wednesday, June 14, 2023 | 6:30 p.m.
Did your latest glass of wine contain notes of gooseberry, brioche, or wet river stone? How does the language we use to describe wine perpetuate its diversity problem? Wine-speak often assumes experience with Western European culture and vocabulary. How can the language of wine shift to be more inclusive for both wine professionals and drinkers? Esther Mobley, wine critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, and Nadine Brown, renowned D.C. sommelier and wine diversity advocate, explore the crucial intersection of language and wine for inclusivity.
We invite you to enjoy a glass of wine or other preferred beverage for an open-ended tasting exercise during the program.
